Empirical Bayes small area prediction under a zero‐inflated lognormal model with correlated random area effects
TLDR
This work develops empirical Bayes (EB) small area predictors and a bootstrap estimator of the mean squared error (MSE) and concludes that the EB predictors of mean RUSLE2 erosion are superior to direct estimators.

Prediction of small area quantiles for the conservation effects assessment project using a mixed effects quantile regression model

Small area prediction of quantiles for zero-inflated data and an informative sample design
ABSTRACT The Conservation Effects Assessment Project (CEAP) is a survey intended to quantify soil and nutrient loss on cropland. Estimates of the quantiles of CEAP response variables are published.

Small Area Estimation with a Lognormal Mixed Model under Informative Sampling
Abstract The demand for reliable business statistics at disaggregated levels, such as industry classes, increased considerably in recent years. Owing to small sample sizes for some of the domains,
Small Area Estimation for Skewed Semicontinuous Spatially Structured Responses
When surveys are not originally designed to produce estimates for small geographical areas, some of these domains can be poorly represented in the sample. In such cases, model-based small area

An Empirical Best Linear Unbiased Prediction Approach to Small-Area Estimation of Crop Parameters
Accurate county (small-area) level estimation of crop and livestock items is an important priority for the USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS). We consider an empirical best linear
Resampling-based empirical prediction: an application to small area estimation
Best linear unbiased prediction is well known for its wide range of applications including small area estimation. While the theory is well established for mixed linear models and under normality of
Robust small area estimation
Small area estimation has received considerable attention in recent years because of growing demand for small area statistics. Basic area‐level and unit‐level models have been studied in the
M-quantile models for small area estimation
Small area estimation techniques typically rely on regression models that use both covariates and random effects to explain variation between the areas. However, such models also depend on strong

In the small area estimation literature, the sampling error variances are customarily assumed to be known or to depend on a finite number of parameters. We consider the empirical best linear unbiased

TLDR
